The 10 must-read books of August, according to Amazon's editors
- Amazon's Best Books of the Month section is one of our go-to sources when we're looking for new books to add to our personal libraries.
- This August, the Amazon editors who curate the selection included new books like "How To Be An Antiracist" by Ibram Kendi, "The Turn of the Key" by Ruth Ware, and "The Ghosts of Eden Park" by Karen Abbot, along with seven other intriguing titles.
- Check out all the new releases below, along with short summaries provided by Amazon's book editor, Erin Kodieck.
I've recently vowed to limit the time I spent looking at my phone before bed and fill that time reading more books. I began by consuming the entire "Harry Potter" series for the first time, then switched to Pete Dexter's classic, "Deadwood." After that I hit a wall, unsure what book to pick up next.
If you're like me and you prefer a physical book to a Kindle, it can be a surprisingly expensive extracurricular activity. To help make sure that the next book you buy is worth it, Amazon's editors choose a selection of 10 noteworthy titles in their Best Books of the Month section (most of which you can also get for the Kindle, if you prefer).
Check out this month's list of books, which include nonfiction exposés, crime-thrillers, and poignant examinations of modern culture.
